General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche Boxster GTS
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Porsche Boxster GTS
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche Boxster GTS
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
4.CO2 emissions

211g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
5.Euro NCAP rating

5

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.
6.turn radius

11m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.35t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.length

4.4m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.wheelbase

2.47m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
4.width

1.96m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.height

1.27m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.maximum headroom (front)

135mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

4.6s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

280km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.coefficient of drag

0.32Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.
4.Nürburgring lap time

7.58

The Nürburgring race circuit is widely considered to be the most challenging in the world, and the fastest lap times are seen as the ultimate test of a car’s performance. (Source: Nürburgring Lap Times)

Engine

1.maximum torque

370Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.number of cylinders

6

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
3.horsepower

330hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.fuel economy (city)

12.4l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.fuel economy (highway)

9.5l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.fuel economy (combined)

10.7l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Porsche Boxster GTS
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.screen size (in-car system)

7"

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
3.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Porsche Boxster GTS
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
4.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.Has smart key as standard
Porsche Boxster GTS
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
6.Has in-car system
Porsche Boxster GTS
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
